Rotation for changing direction. This clinic is for returning participants. With 88 keys and only 5 fingers per hand, a pianist's hands need to change directions all the time - for scale crosses, moving from the thumb, moving from 5, and changes of direction in passagework. Teresa Dybvig will draw from her experience with Dorothy Taubman's approach to piano technique to show you how to change directions efficiently, and how to know when changes of direction come up in playing.
